Teaching English in SyriaBack to Tefl World

Syria used to be a favourite destination for TEFL teachers because of the warm welcome they received, the amazing historical sites and the wonderful cuisine.  The terribly sad events of the last few years mean that most of the country is a no-go zone.  If you should find a teaching opportunity in Syria, you should first check with your government’s foreign office to see what they advise about working there.  

Area Code
Arabic (official), Kurdish, Armenian, Aramaic, Circassian (widely understood); French, English (somewhat understood)

TEFL in the Middle East: an interview with a teacher who has worked all over the Arabian Gulf Friday 12 Aug 2016

Have you considered working in the Middle East, particularly in the Arabian Gulf?  Adverts encouraging tourists to visit the area show images of amazing shopping centres, beautiful beaches lined with palm trees, four-wheel-drive vehicles hurtling up and down huge sand dunes, and usually someone with a falcon on his arm gazing over a spectacular desert sunset.  But what’s it really like?  Here we interview a British teacher, Dave, and ask him for his reflections on working in countries around the Gulf.
